Mach 3 and Venus razor blades

Did you know they're the exact same blades and can both be used on either razor handle? I discovered this awhile back when I was looking at the blades. My husband and son shave with the Mach 3, I use Venus. As I was looking at the blades I realized they were the same size and fit on the handles the exact same way! I figure my hubby and son don't want the pink girlie looking blades, so when I buy razor blades I just buy the Mach 3 for all us. Saves money!

Unfortunately I think they're the same price. I buy the Mach 3 blades because my son and husband also use them. I figure they probably don't want PINK venus blades on their manly Mach 3 razor handles! LOL It's just really convenient to buy a package of blades and know we can all use the same ones. I don't like the cheap razors either. I end up with razor burn and cuts. OUCH!!!!

That is nice to know. They cost about the same, but it would be nice to only have to buy one kind. Thanks for the tips.
